•
Introduce yourselves! Despite popular belief, math is in fact a team sport!
•
Find some blackboard space, a piece of chalk, and decide who will be your ﬁrst scribe.
•
Do the problems below, having a diﬀerent person be the scribe for each one.
•
Try to work out the problems as a group, but feel free to ﬂag me down if you run into a wall.

2. Decide whether each of the following are true or false. For those that are true, prove it. For those that are
false, provide a counterexample.
(a) If
f,g
are injective, then
f
◦
g
is
(b) If
f,g
are surjective, then
f
◦
g
is
(c) If
f
◦
